Packt is attending Microsoft Tech-Ed from the 7th to the 10th of June in New Orleans. James Lumsden, publisher for Packt Enterprise, and Mark Nichols, Packt's marketing executive, will both be spending a lot of time on the floor of the exposition, and it would be great to meet some of the organizations attending.

If you will be at Tech-Ed, drop us a message on TechEd@PacktPub.com.
